look at the firefighters from up above trying to water down this. we understand it's still on fire. still smoking. we'll be back at 7:25 with a lifeup date for you. >> have a great day. see you tomorrow. good morning. breaking overnight. another member of the military in charge of sexual assault prevention being investigated for sex crimes. this time an army sergeant accused of assaulting three soldiers, forcing one of them into prostitution. we're hearing for the first time from ariel castro's attorneys. his defense strategy -- >> two words, not guilty. >> and what he says about the little girl he fathered with one of his victims. you decide -- 10 million people have watched this couple belting out tunes at a gas
7:01am
station pump for "the tonight show." was it a spontaneous moment or were they in on the act. we'll ask them today may 15th, 2013. and and good morning. welcome to "today" on wednesday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> i'm savannah guthrie. what a disturbing story at the top. all service members in sexual assault prevention programs to be rescreened and retrained in the wake of those back-to-back assault cases. >> let us get right to jim miklaszews miklaszewski. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. here we go again p, for the second time in two weeks. an american servicemen, who is supposed to be protecting women against sexual assault is accused, at least, of sexual assault.
7:02am
lawmakers on capitol hill are already calling these latest allegations disgusting and sickening. the name of this army sergeant hasn't been released because he hasn't been formally charged yet. if these accusations are true, this case appears to be especially heinous. this latest military sex scandal comes out of ft. hood, texas. sources tell nbc news army investigators are looking into allegations that an army sergeant sexually assaulted a female soldier under his command, then forced her into prostitution and allegedly sexually assaulted two others. it's the second such case this month. just last week air force lieutenant colonel jeff krusinski, the officer in charge of sexual assault prevention for the air force was arrested and charged with sexual battery against a woman in a virginia parking lot. the police report described him as a drunken male subject who approached a woman, grabbed her breast and buttocks before she
7:03am
fought him off. defense secretary chuck hagel was furious. >> we're all outraged and disgusted over these very troubling allegations. >> reporter: even more troubling hagel released the pentagon's latest report which shows a disturbing increase in sexual assaults in the military. there were 3,374 sexual assaults last year, a 6% rise. but assaults that went unreported skyrocketed from 19 to 26,000. defense secretary hagel again promises there will be swift justice done in this case and that all of those sexual assault leaders will be rescreened to make sure they are up to the job. but lawmakers are already arguing up on capitol hill that, look, the entire military culture and justice system that tends to make some of these attackers believe they can get away with it must change.
7:04am
savannah. >> jim miklaszewski at the pentagon. another report, the irs's targeting of conservative political groups. nbc senior investigative correspondent lisa myers has the latest developments. lisa, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. this official report confirms what conservatives have been saying for a while, that the irs was targeting them. the report says the irs unit responsible was a mess and that some employees were actually ignorant about tax laws. tea party and conservative groups applying for tax exempt status began being targeted by the irs in 2010, the report says, based upon their names or policy positions. the inspector general's report says the inappropriate criteria was used for 18 months in targeting groups for review and resulted in substantial delays on applications and unnecessary information requests. the report quotes irs supervisors as saying no one outside the irs asked that
7:05am
conservative groups get extra scrutiny. the president called the findings in tolerable and inexcusable and directed that those involved be held accountable. >> what's most disturbing is the inspector general could not rule out that there was a broader problem, including, perhaps, personal audits or other groups being targeted. >> reporter: the irs insists that while the criteria was inappropriate both liberal and conservative groups were treated equally in determining the ultimate outcome. it insists there was no attempt to hide the issue, even though congress was not told for a year. >> this is unacceptable, and it's immoral. it's the kind of behavior we associate not with the greatest democracy in the world but with corrupt dictators. >> attorney general eric holder says he's ordered an fbi investigation. >> i think as everyone can agree, if not criminal, they were certainly outrageous and unacceptable. but we're examining the facts to see if there were criminal
7:06am
violations. >> reporter: and the irs's problems got worse this morning with this headline revealing that while conservatives were buried in paperwork, liberal groups got approved easily. for the record, the president's spokesman categorically denies the white house had anything to do with any of this. savannah. >> lisa myers in washington. david gregory, moderator of "meet the press." david, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. >> we've got three scandals at a boil in washington. david, in your view, which is the most potentially dangerous to the white house in the long-term. >> this irs story is politically toxic. the headlines lisa referred to, the fact other groups could have been target. we are not necessarily at the end of this by a long shot. there's a passivity by the president and white house that even his aides acknowledge is a problem. why there hasn't been a faster, more stringent response. we only saw last night a
7:07am
blistering statement from the president and finally his secretary of the treasury that oversees the irs. there have been conservative groups complaining bought this for over a year. it is time in the view of many, republicans and democrats, the president, the white house to lay out a process of accountability. how they go about this. what they say on the inside, they are frustrated to by the practical limitations on the president's power. he can't after all just dismiss his acting head of the irs without cause, because the irs has insulation from the executive branch, precisely out of fear of political interference. >> very quickly to tie that up, do you think that a high-profile head needs to roll here? >> i think there's a lot of people that think that is the case, that somebody is going to have to lose their job at some point, once they figure out what the root of the problem was. reporting in the speech, what kind of in competence, what kind of targeting did you go on that
7:08am
was so lopsided. aides to the president, allies on the outside say this is the most politically toxic. everybody understands this. this as a symbol of government overreach could be very difficult to overcome. >> let me pick up on that. you have on the surface at least three disparate stories, irs, lingering questions about terror attacks in benghazi, wide sweep of phone calls by the justice department. is there a common thread, a common narrative that is the critique of the administration here? >> i don't know that you can tie all of them together. i think on the benghazi business, i think on the irs, i think there is a feeling there is too much passivity. the president is too much of a bystander learning about these things about the irs from news reports, a disinclination to deal with substance on benghazi questions, because he felt there was so much political motivation in some of the attacks. the reality is there were facts
7:09am
unearthed, questions left unanswered and the president seems disinclined to deal with them. all these things taken together becomes a distraction. that gets thrown away a lot. on the second term, an adviser tells me, any day you waste is a day you cannot get back when you've got a limited window to get done the business you want to get done in a second term. >> david gregory, moderator of "meet the press." now here is matt. we have exclusive new details this morning tied to the cleveland kidnapping case. the lawyers for the suspect, ariel castro, are speaking out for the first time on his behalf. today national investigative correspondent jeff rossen has more on that. hey, jeff. >> reporter: good morning to you. we've heard a lot about ariel castro in the last week. police say he kidnapped, raped and tortured those women for a decade in his own house. his own relatives call him a monster. his lawyer says, hang on, people have it all wrong. in fact, they say, castro is a
7:10am
loving dad. early tuesday he met with his new legal team inside the county jail. when his lawyers emerged, they were painting a new picture of this man accused of unspeakable crimes. >> the initial portrayal by the media has been one of a, quote, monster and that's not the impression i got. >> reporter: they spoke exclusive to affiliate kyc laying out the defense strategy for the first time. >> it definitely is going to be two words, not guilty. >> reporter: but police sources say in his interrogation castro confessed, giving investigators exacting detail about how he abducted michelle, amanda and gina. >> this child kidnapper operated a torture chamber and private prison in the heart of our city. >> reporter: but castro's lawyers say he hasn't admitted the kidnappings to them. so how did the girls end up in
7:11am
his house? >> that fact will be disclosed as the case progresses. >> but you know? >> i am aware of how he came into contact with them. >> reporter: but perhaps the most surprising comments came next. castro's feelings for amanda berry's 6-year-old daughter. according to the police report, amanda had to deliver her baby in a plastic pool in the house. dna now confirms castro is the father. >> mr. castro is extremely committed to the well-being and positive future for his daughter who he loves dearly. >> reporter: the lawyers say they will mount the best defense they can and may even request a change of venue to make sure castro gets a fair trial. this morning castro remains in jail on suicide watch. that means no television, no radio, matt, no access to the outside world, just his lawyers. >> jeff rossen, jeff, thank you
7:12am
very much. natalie has new information on a rather interesting spy story out of russia. >> very interesting story. good morning, guys. u.s. ambassador in moscow was called to the russian foreign ministry this morning after security officials there say they caught a u.s. diplomat acting as a spy. chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell has the story. >> reporter: it was a scene out of the cold war, the lead story on russia's state-owned news. a u.s. embassy employee supposedly caught in the act shown being stripped of his disguise allegedly trying to recruit a russian for the cia. 29-year-old ryan fogle, a junior level diplomat caught with sunglasses, maps, money, offering up to $1 million a year, instructions for opening a gmail account. russians released him to the u.s. embassy. he'll probably be sent home. at washington's spy museum a
7:13am
former cia spy says it happens all the time. >> i've used disguise. sometimes something as simple as a wig and glasses will do that. even though it may look sort of corny, or sixth grade to people, it can work. >> reporter: russians call it provocative. u.s. officials don't believe it will set back communications, the boston bombing and standoff in syria. secretary of state meeting with russian counterpart in sweden, presumably not trading spy story. for "today," andrea mitchell, nbc news, washington. the widow of the boston bombing suspect tamerlan tsarnaev will cooperate with investigators according to new attorney that has defended several suspects before. russell has not been charged but the legal team has yet to release details of what she saw in the days leading up to the marathon bombing that was

8:22am
kind of the same guys through the chaos of the movies. what i think has been funny about stu, now in the third movie is he's married to a beautiful woman, he's got a little more confidence and fashion sense. we start off the movie thinking maybe he's cooler. but as soon as the chaos starts, he's right back to neurotic. wimpy stu as you said. >> when you look at what's happened to this character over the course of these movies, i mean, he married a stripper, pulled out his own tooth, found the tiger in his bathroom. when you got the script were you opening it thinking what could they possibly come up with next? >> yes. every time i pick up a new hangover script, i'm terrified what might happen to stu. iii was no disappointed in that way. >> don't want to give anything away. >> i can't say what happens. i'll just say when i read it, i was mortified. i'm kind of a conservative guy.

perfect work out. nbc's mara schiavocampo has the story. i know you like the workout very much. >> it's an obsession. it seemed like a pretty unlikely start to a successful business. two women who just met throwing together a fitness company on the fly. over seven years they have learned sometimes you have to think big but start small. for super spinner julie rice this isn't just a work out, it's work. seven years ago rice co-founded a unique brand of exercise calling her spin classes soul cycle. it's been a wild ride ever since. >> we thought we could make exercise fun. we thought we could make it inspirational. >> reporter: the philosophy is part spin -- >> you guys ready to rock and roll? >> reporter: part party. [ cheers ] >> reporter: part meditation. 45 minutes of intense cardio set to high energy music, lit only by candles. to say it's popular would be an under statement.
8:39am
>> it's a great mixture of cardio and strength. >> it's the high i have never gotten from any place else. >> reporter: the workout has a cult-like following including many celebrities. devoted fans consider it more of a lifestyle than a mere fitness class. >> i come to soul cycle at least once a day, sometimes twice. >> reporter: most days rice is riding right along with the pack. >> i'm always moved by it. i'm never immune to it. >> reporter: rice never thought she'd end up in the fitness business. the married mom of two spent most of her career as a hollywood talent manager. when she couldn't find the perfect workout, she decided to create it. >> californians really exercise in a way that's so much more a part of their lifestyle. it's joyful. it's not about, i have to go to the gym, it's on my to-do list. when i came to new york i was looking for that experience. >> reporter: rice started the company with elizabeth cudler, a virtual stranger she'd only just met. >> it's when you meet a great

8:41am
a small idea can be a small idea. >> reporter: rice learned there were life lessons she could take from soul cycle classes. >> i would encourage people not to overthink it. just do it. put one foot in front of the other and make it happen. >> reporter: one workout putting a new spin on business and life. [ cheers and applause ] >> there are no memberships to soul cycle. one of the first business decisions was to charge per class. that's a model popularized by yoga studios. over the next two years rice and her partner plan to quadruple the number of studios. i can tell you it becomes an addiction for some. >> i think i burned 500 calories just watching that. >> thanks, savannah. >> up next, guy fieri is on the plaza, firing up the grill. first, this is "today" on nbc. star command,

8:45am
this is deeper, more intense flavor than marinating. this gets right inside the meat. >> all right. >> then a dry rub. you have chili powder, cumin, garlic, onion, ginger, salt and pepper. >> you do it after the brine? so you brine and spice rub it? >> you do both methods, what you put on the outside, a little barbecue sauce at the end, that's the finishing touch. this is the real depth of flavor. so we take this, hit the dry rub over the top. bring it over here. the great part about this, don't want to get that. >> that's all right. >> we drop this on the grill. we take it and flatten it out a little bit. >> use something heavy. you have a brick with tinfoil on it. >> we take the warm bricks. we drop them on top. this presses the chicken as it cooks. this particular chicken i call
